Book review Tuesday on Wednesday
4 star review of A Darker Shade of Sorcery by Will Collins
Evan, who lived in an orphanage in London and was bullied by schoolmates, and Brooke a typical teen girl are kidnapped by Venators, i.e., demon hunters. The first part filled with monstrous beings was not my cup of tea, but then the descriptions of their school and magic and physical training, reminding of Hogwarts, was easier to read, although slightly too long. The world building with the various realms was good and the character development was too. Will Collins is a talented writer. I'm not sure I'll continue with the Realmers series, but that's due to my very personal dislike of ghouls and demons.
